Lake Champlain Chocolate Recalled Due to Plastic Contamination
Did you get or give chocolate during the holidays? Well, there's a chance it could be part of a huge chocolate recall just announced by the FDA.
According to the voluntary recall, products produced by Lake Champlain Chocolates headquartered in Burlington, VT were somehow contaminated with plastic particles during the manufacturing process. At least one consumer found the plastic brittle pieces in one of their products. Out of an abundance of caution, and after an investigation, Lake Champlain Chocolates decided to issue a voluntary recall of some products made between July 2020 through January 2021.
According to the recall, the affected products include:
- Hazelnut Five Star Bar
- Fruit & Nut Five Star Bar
- Almond Five Star Bar
- Granola Five Star Bar
- Organic Milk Chocolate Bar with Sea Salt & Almonds
- Milk Chocolate Almond Bark
- Chocolates of Vermont Green Mountain
Currently, no adverse reactions or sicknesses have been reported due to chocolate plastic contamination.
These products can be found within a variety of other gift packages, boxes, and baskets. The chocolate distributed through retailers and distributors across all fifty states and in the company’s three Vermont retail stores.
LCC is asking customers to discontinue use and immediately dispose of any products listed above. For any additional questions or concerns please email email@example.com.
